Option #1: Refinance your current mortgage and convert your home equity into monthly payments. Live in your home until you sell, move, or die. And, never have to make monthly principal or interest mortgage payments so long as you comply with the loan terms.
Option #2: Establish a Standby Line of Credit that you can tap into when needed. Prevent the necessity to sell investments at a loss during down markets. Have access to cash to manage elder health care requirements.
Option #3: A way for retirees to purchase a home with special advantages that set it apart from conventional mortgage financing options. Downsize to that new senior condo or cottage without the requirement to bring "all cash" to the closing table.
